    Third possible swine flu outbreak in Mexico -- WHO
    Fri Apr 24, 2009 9:35pm BST

    GENEVA (Reuters) - Mexico has reported a third possible outbreak of swine flu in Mexicali, near the U.S. border, with four suspect cases and no deaths to date, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Friday.

    The WHO also said that the viruses in the outbreaks in Mexico and the United States had not been detected in pigs or humans before but were proving sensitive to Tamiflu. Known generically as oseltamivir, the pill by Swiss drugmaker Roche Holding can both treat flu and prevent infection.

    "Because there are human cases associated with an animal influenza virus, and because of the geographical spread of multiple community outbreaks, plus the somewhat unusual age groups affected, these events are of high concern," the Geneva-based agency said in a statement.

    GINEBRA (Reuters) ? M?xico report? un posible tercer brote de influenza porcina, en este caso en Mexicali cerca de la frontera con Estados Unidos, con cuatro casos sospechosos pero sin muertos hasta ahora, dijo el viernes la Organizaci?n Mundial de la Salud (OMS).

    La OMS agreg? que los virus en los brotes en M?xico y en Estados Unidos no hab?an sido detectados previamente en cerdos o en humanos, pero se ha probado que son sensibles al medicamento Tamiflu.

    Conocido gen?ricamente como oseltamivir, la p?ldora del laboratorio farmac?utico suizo Roche Holding puede tanto combatir a la gripe como prevenir las infecciones.

    "Debido a que hay casos humanos asociados con un virus de influenza animal y debido a la propagaci?n geogr?fica de brotes en m?ltiples comunidades, adem?s de la edad algo inusual de los grupos afectados, estos eventos generan una alta preocupaci?n", dijo la agencia con sede en Ginebra en un comunicado.

    La Organizaci?n de las Naciones Unidas (ONU) emiti? un folleto informativo para que las personas conozcan m?s sobre este virus.
